on egypt and on yemen and the protests of u.s. embassies in those countries and in about nine other countries around the globe today. these protests flaring in response to a cure, obscure, anti-muslim video of still murky origins. nbc's richard engel is going to be joining us live from cairo shortly be the latest news from there. see, these are images from cairo. people still gathered near the u.s. embassy, still rather hairy situation as you can see there. we'll be checking in with richard momentarily. >>> when moammar gadhafi was still alive, when he was still the dictator of libya, gadhafi had a plan to settle the conflict between israel and the palestinians. to settle that issue once and for all in a very simple way, all you had to do, he said, was make a new place. a new place that would be called isratine. so it was like israel and palestine but you combined them so it would be isratine. he thought just calling a new place that would settle everything. moammar gadhafi also had a condoleezza price problem in he loved condoleezza rice too much. when his compound in tripoli was o
international sensitivity, like we are in today, in the wake of the deadly attack on americans at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, in the last 24 hours, at times like this, frankly all of any president's public appearances have a higher than normal potential to make real news. so we are going to be monitoring the president's campaign speech, and if he makes comments about the protests in libya, we will bring that to you. the president just sat down with an interview with jose diaz balart, the host of telemundo on our sister network. excerpts of this interview are going to air on telemundo tomorrow morning and also ton their nightly news show jose diaz balart at 6:30 p.m. but what we've got right now is exclusive. with you're about to see here has not been seen anywhere until now. this is the president of the united states, giving his first extended response to questions about yesterday's events in benghazi, libya and in cairo, egypt. >> mr. president, for the first time since 1979, a sitting ambassador, christopher stevens, plus three other americans were killed in the line of duty.
is when then-president george w. bush ordered the u.s.-led invasion of iraq, march 2003. it was also the month when it was ordered that the flag-draped coffins of american service members killed abroad could not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the follo
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi today and set it on fire. witnesses say explosions were heard nearby and the men who attacked the american building were armed. there are conflicting reports about exactly how grave the attack was on the u.s. consulate. some are siting that a staffer, an american official was killed in the attack on the consulate. now while the state department has condemned the attack, officials are saying it's impossible to confirm the reporting about the potential death of a u.s. official in libya. at least at this time it is impossible to confirm it. nbc news is working to confirm that report. it's based on comments from a libyan official at this time. >>> also today in cairo, a group of protesters there breached the outer walls of the u.s. embassy in cairo. the embassy has been described as fortress-like. you can see that in some of the images. the protesters in cairo reportedly luted some of the buildings inside these outer walls after they breached the perimeter of the complex. they did definitely take down the american flag. you can see there was a large crowd
romney guy, the answer is a very, very plain answer. no. his favorable ratings are in the low 40s. almost 10 points lower than the ratings for president obama. lower, even, than the famously unpopular former president george w. bush right now. swing state voters say they do not think that mitt romney cares about the needs and problems of people like them. some of mr. romney's numbers are just shockingly bad. i mean double check. shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swing state voters who say mitt romney's policies will favor the middle class. in florida it's 8%. in ohio it's 9%. in pennsylvania it's 9%. whatever the romney campaign has done to get themselves to this point, whether it's mr. romney's tax returns, or the lack thereof, or getting rich by laying off factory workers or the tape where he says half the country is a bunch of lazy bums and victims who depend on the government and he doesn't care about them. whatever it is that turned their candidate into the 2012 reincarnation of thurston howell except in this reincarnation thurston is mean, whatever it is that has done that i
closing argument for his campaign. the-me ade s abwhhenthodo with the savings that we will obtain when we eventually end the war in afghanistan. but while mrromney did mention veterans in his virginia speech today, he did not say what he would do to improve the problem that he identified for veterans. iicated he might not know even which part of the government is supposed to fix a problem like that. and he still can't bring himself to talk about what he would do as commander in chief. he still can't bring himself to talk about the warhat we are still in that is now producing new veterans every day and is anotco oarp dog thator in any other election year, with any other candidate who was more capable of holding his own on this issue, we would be having a debate on this issue. we would be having a big national debate on this subject right now. because itery obviously needs debating.

issue. the country s changed in terms of the makeup of the population. you know, we don't know wh's goto happewithhis election. it could still go either way. but if the republican party doesn't change its message and sttegies and it's whole message, it's doomed because it can no longer function in what tise about the s has come. legitimacy of the president and trying to other rise him, i found myself in reading the right-wing arguments, it's not just stuff from the blog world. it's definitely relatively retepuanls starting to get on board. it made me start to think about let's say the election goes the way the polls say it's going to go. aren't they laying t groundwork to say he stole the lek? that his election is illegitimate? whether or not you think he's foreign, he couldn't possibly be a legitimate president for a second term. >> theare never going to acknowdghe'segitatel president. he can serve the full eight years. they are not going to acknowledge he was legitimate. but the question becomes, can it ma viaasar? and the real problem that the republicans have, i mean the polls come a

[ phillips' lady ] live the regular life. phillips'. >>> i wrote an op-ed piece in the boston globe, described my view that i am pro life, described why i had changed to become pro life. i recognize it's a change. you can find many, many instances of my indicating my position previous to that time of being effectively pro choice. i didn't call myself pro choice, but my position was effectively pro choice, and that position changed. >> that waz republican presidential nominee mitt romney the last time he was running for president, speaking on "meet the press." abortion was not an issue in the election the way it is this year. but even then, he had trouble explaining what he meant about it. >> i didn't call myself pro choice, but
, even to other republicans. look, i've been involved in presidential politics since the '70s. that is a very long time. i never heard any republican or democratic candidate for president write off almost half the people, show disdain for almost half the people. and i never saw a candidate who would refuse to put out his income tax -- if he thinks paying income taxes are so important, show us the money. show us the tax returns. so it's rather stunning, to me. the whole thing. >> senator boxer, let me also ask you, as a member of the senate foreign relations committee, one of the things that has received, i think proportionately less attention from that tape, from mr. romney's fund-raiser, was his remarks about the israeli and palestinian peace process, essentially describing it as too hard to work on and saying that his strategy would be to not to expect anything to work and to just kick it down the road and hope that something would happen, to hope that something would get better. i don't know why that would be an appealing message for donors to hear. i don't understand why h
answer. no. his favorable ratings are in the low 40s, almost 10 points lower than the ratings for president obama. lower even than the famously unpopular former president george w. bush right now. swing state voters say they do not think mitt romney cares about the needs of people like them. some of them are shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swing state voters who say mitt romney's policies will favor the middle class. in florida it's 8%. in ohio it's 9%, in pennsylvania it's 9%. whatever the romney campaign has done to gem themselves to this point, whether it's mr. romney's tax returns or lack there of or getting rich by laying off fact workers or that videotape that said half the country is lady bums and he doesn't care about them? in this reincarnation, thurston is mean. whaef it is that has done that is just killing him in the polls,every state. if the romney campaign does nothing else, they must, must, must make sure that nobody anywhere near mitt romney does that rich guy can't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both m
. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant oil company trying to buy american oil infrastructure. think the deal is going to go through this time? it's a $15 billion oil deal. you think it's going to go through? it didn't in 2005. hount this new version? since the last time the united states said no, cnooc is famous for going into business with iran. they are in the process of developing a huge iranian natural gas field. i know it's china and china doesn't follow the same rules as everybody else, but why would they get into bed with the rogue state that is iran? apparently they did it specifically to annoy us as described in the financial times today. the chinese government told cnooc to go ahead with their deal immediately after the u.s. agreed to sell arms to tehran. so we agree d. fine we'll have our company hook iran up. how do you like us now? the chairman of this oil corporation

published this internal assessment from the u.s. military in afghanistan. and it shows sort of inadvertently what the effect has been of the big obama troop surge in the war. in 2009, after he was inaugurated, and there was a summertime surge of violence and attacks in afghanistan, president obama took several months in 2009 to do an intensive review of american strategy in the war. you'll remember that he announced that the end of that review, at the end of 2009 in december, that he was going to send tens of thousands more american troops into afghanistan. the idea, they said, was to blunt the taliban's momentum. so here's the data he was looking at in terms of what the taliban's momentum was when he made his decision to send the surge. what you're looking at there on the left is the calendar year. it's what the military in afghanistan calls enemy initiated attacks. all the years of all fights in afghanistan all have that general sort of pattern where it peaks in the summer and drops in the winter. that's what they call the fighting season in afghanistan. looking at that, see what the overa
